Can Max Verstappen cash in on pole position in France and increase lead in F1 championship?

Max Verstappen impressively captured pole position for the French GP yesterday. This gives the Dutchman an excellent opportunity to take revenge for the dramatic blowout in Azerbaijan and to increase his lead in the World Cup standings.

However, Verstappen will encounter a lot of resistance not only during the start but also during the next race. After all, World Cup rival Lewis Hamilton will start next to Max Verstappen on the front row. In addition, Mercedes has a second important iron in the fire with Valtteri Bottas in third place.

This allows Mercedes to challenge Max Verstappen strategically not only at the start but also during the race. There is also a chance of rain. We therefore seem to have an exciting GP of France.

See you at 3 pm when the French GP starts at the Paul Ricard circuit.
